Our concept was a simple one. A "meat and potatoes" fast-food operation, providing a unique visual, sensory and eating experience for the customer, with the emphasis on low cost and high value for the customer and a low operating cost and high return for the store.
Since 1982, The Great Steak & Potato Company has been serving the finest Cheesesteak sandwiches in hundreds of locations throughout the U.S., Canada and abroad. Our recipe - freshness. We use the finest ingredients, prepared to order, to ensure the freshest, most delicious eating experience.
Our signature items - genuine Philadelphia Cheesesteak sandwiches; fresh-cut French fries; fresh-squeezed lemonade; chicken; ham and veggie "Philadelphias;" baked potatoes with all the toppings.
Our signature attractions are only the finest, freshest ingredients. Grilled and prepared to order, right in front of the customer.
Today The Great Steak & Potato Company consists of hundreds of stores (20 of which are company owned with the remainder franchisee owned) in 40 states, Canada, the United Kingdom and Middle East.
There are several thousand chain employees system-wide. We provide an optional centralized computer accounting service with both food and labor cost programs. We realize controlled growth of at least 25 stores per year.
As one of the fastest growing franchising and marketing companies in North America, The Great Steak & Potato Company Restaurants are owned by the Kahala Corporation, a privately held corporation dedicated to the design, development and marketing of quick service restaurants.
Kahala supports its franchisees by providing seasoned real estate guidance, ongoing operational support, and turnkey marketing programs designed to optimize profitability and boost register receipts.
We are currently licensing area development deals as well as franchise agreements for all of Kahala's branded concepts, which includes a variety of good-for-you branded concepts that are in step with today's growing trend towards low-fat, nutritious eating. They include Frullati Cafe, Surf City Squeeze, Ranch 1, Samurai Sam's, Rollerz and Taco Time - all of which deliver strong unit economics, people-pleasing menus and operational ease. Kahala is also offering co-branded opportunities to both existing franchisees as well as new prospects.
